Portland, OR
The supplementary materials for Golden Retriever's Seer boast verbiage about otoacoustic emissions, inner-ear rectification and 11-limit just intonation — scholarly stuff that betrays the Portland duo’s conservatory-spawned approach to musical experimentation.
But for all of the syllables, it’s language that neglects the simple sonic beauty of the work they make: a submersive, electro-acoustic swell of analog synthesizer and manipulated bass clarinet, all recalling the classic explorations of American experimentalists like Raymond Scott and David Behrman. 
The record’s been out for a minute, but tonight they’ll be celebrating its release at Holocene. Have a listen to their elegant “Flight Song” here.
